 My Father-In-Law is getting married to a wonderful lady in 3 weeks.  Her friends had a shower for her today up in Nashville, so Katie and I made the trek.  Brenda really appreciates all the things I make and maybe I can get her hooked and by association, her friends :)  But, here are the gifts I made for her.

AHHHHH...what a terrible picture.  Didn't get a chance to take the picture under the lights.  I showed you the digital wedding invites I made for her a month ago.  I was staying with the same Coral/Gray combo.  It worked.  I used glossy white (Amanda) cardstock for the dress and tea for 2 DSP.  The gray and pink ribbon in the spring catty is very high quality.  I still stand by what I said earlier.  The oval framelits are essential in your arsenal of products.

I was very proud for her to show this off to all her friends.  I got this frame at Target.  They have some really fun ones right now.  I just traced the cardboard piece inside the frame and cut it out from our newspaper DSP.  The rest is adhered to the front of the glass.  I used Soft Suede and very vanilla cardstock along with our brushed gold paper in the mirror.  I stamped the sentiment on a window sheet with black stazon and then punched it out with the large oval punch.  I love the sentiment from 'Trust God'.  It gives some directions for life, but leave the rest to God.  No better advice for a newlywed :)

Then I had to make her thank you notes.  I used one of our single stamps that I think is ADORABLE!!!  It's called Towels for Two.

I just embossed the top of the stamp with the pewter and then put the towels on top with dimensionals.
